CRACS organizes "Porto Winter School on Network Science"

17 December 2018

This school is a research training event geared precisely towards the science of networks and it offers a set of lectures and tutorials given by worldwide leading experts from the academia. The attendees are expected to gain insight into the theory, methods and applications of network science, by being exposed to some the most important problems and their state-of-art solutions, thus improving their vision on the associated research challenges.


Machine learning and computational cognitive neuroscience

21 September 2018
By Francisco Pereira head of the Machine Learning Team at the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH, USA).
The seminar starts at 4pm at the Amphitheater 2 of FC6 (Dep. Ciência de Computadores, FCUP). From the abstract: "... In this talk, I will review brain imaging technology, and highlight some of the more interesting uses of machine learning to further cognitive neuroscience research. I will also describe several areas where there are opportunities to make methodological contributions with clinical and scientific impact."

Seminar by Prof. Kay Barthel on "Visually Browsing Millions of Images using Image Graphs"

03 March 2017

Where: Amphitheatre 2 (FC6), CS Department, FCUP, Rua do Campo Alegre 1021, Porto

When: 3rd of March 2017 / 11:30am

Abstract: We present a new approach to visually browse very large sets of untagged images. High quality image descriptors are generated using transformed activations of a convolutional neural network. These features are used to model image similarities, from which a hierarchical image graph is build. We show how such a graph can be constructed efficiently. Best user experience for navigating this graph is achieved by projecting sub-graphs onto a regular 2D-image map. This allows users to explore the image graph similar to navigation services.
